$500 project grant for new work

  • Deadline:
    Jan. 15, 2022, 9:01 p.m.

NEW WORK is a mini-grant program created to assist visual artists with the production of unique artwork. The program is offered through a biannual open call providing grants in July and January. The program is designed to support projects that don’t fit into the traditional commercial gallery system allowing artists to take risks and experiment with new ideas. We are looking for works that are representative of the time and generate discussion.

Prospect Art is looking for visual artists that require financial assistance to finish the production of new work. We are looking to support work by professional artists not currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program. The New Work program provides a $500 mini-grant twice a year to an individual artist or artists' collective. A new project can be at any stage of completion, from initial concept to finishing touches in preparation for an exhibition. Project has to be completed within five months of disbursement.

This program supports artists locally, nationally, and internationally.

Proposals will only be accepted through a Google form.
